Characters / Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures

DMFA has Loads and Loads of Characters, so it was only natural there'd be a character page here for it sooner or later.

Look out for spoilers, particularly if you go to the cast pages proper.

    Main Characters 
Daniel Ti'Fiona

Daniel Ti'Fiona is the brother of Alexsi and a retired adventurer. More or less the star of the comic.


A faerie whose favored/default form is a purple-furred cat, Mab lives in a pocket dimension in Dan's closet and is an integral part of the main cast.

    Supporting Characters 

Jyrras Gianna

A half kangaroo rat/kangaroo, short, shy, cute Jyrras is also a scientific genius with a sizable fortune due to his inventions and the influence of his mother, a highly respected lawyer.
  • Adorkable
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Everyone he's been attracted to so far is badass, a jerk, and/or demonic... but sweet and goofy or a Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Inverted. Jyrras is the youngest of seven, the only boy, and the only one to be a kangaroo rat like their dad instead of a kangaroo like their mom. The result is that they persistently treat him like a baby and goodheartedly pick on him for being "so adorable", and with their superior size and strength, he can't do anything to stop them pestering him. He's ecstatic when his mom gives birth to a little brother because this means that they'll focus their attentions on him instead.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Small, adorable-looking and gentle-natured, but quite willing to attack like a wild animal if he's cornered and desperate. To say nothing of his talent for producing scientific weaponry.
  • Bi the Way: Maybe. Abel's early comments suggest that Jyrras might be bisexual, but Jyrras later concludes that he's gay...and then starts secondguessing his conclusion.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Always seen wearing some shade of blue and it's usually light blue.
  • Gayngst: A downplayed case, but he does get some plot complications; two cases of Incompatible Orientation in a row, plus his own dithering on whether he is or isn't bisexual enough to like Lorenda.
  • Gender Equals Breed: He's a kangaroo rat like his dad, while his sisters are all kangaroos like their mom.
  • Incompatible Orientation: First with Dan and then with Abel.
  • Lethal Chef: As of strip 1314.
  • Mad Scientist: While it has yet to be directly related to the series, Jyrras is a very skilled inventor who has even accidentally created life. Twice, in fact.
  • Shrinking Violet: Jyrras is the shyest character in the series.
  • Single Guy Seeks Good Man: The reason he likes Abel and Dan as he reveals to Daniel himself. There is/was also his attraction to Lorenda who, whilst a Demon, is a genuine Nice Girl.
  • The Ditherer: The Insecure. Along with his shyness, Jyrras is also known for his indecisiveness and ever-questioning attitude towards his choices in life (as such discussed about his Goals in Life when he first met Dan) and his personal feelings (most notably his skepticism regarding his feelings toward Dan, Lorenda, and Abel and whether he believes he's truly gay or not).
  • Transparent Closet: As lampshaded by Lorenda in comic 829. His sisters called it from early on.
  • Truly Single Parent: Created Deathbringer and M.A.C.E. and calls them "his daughters", who in turn call him "their father."
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: To Dan.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Wildy at least seems to think this is the reason that he wouldn't take the free punch she offered him. Given that she's a close friend and Jyrras isn't particularly violent, she could very well be wrong.

Lorenda Soulstealer

A chubby but friendly Cow/Demon-Mare half-breed, Lorenda Soulstealer lives at Jyrras's mansion and looks out for him.


A small drake, Mab's apparent pet/best companion and bane of Dan's life.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Dan, Abel and Fi have all been terrorized by him at some point. Normally, he just seems a harmless pet.
  • The Chessmaster: Forces Jyrras to reveal his firearm technology to the world by eating the phone. Although he had hoped that the resulting confrontation would have gotten someone killed.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: He's a small drake, vastly undersized and underpowered compared to "standard" dragons. The Reveal that real dragons are the Lawful counterpart to the Chaotic fae and don't exist on Furrae also implies that he is one of those dragons whose omnipotence was taken away for disobedience the Dragons' creator, Direlamyl. Presumably, Mab doesn't know this in-character.
  • The Unintelligible: except to Mab. It might be Obfuscating Stupidity, if Abel's dream is any indicator.

Wildy San

A hot-blooded, hot-tempered, mischievous ferret with a major tomboyish streak. She and Dan have been friends since they were kids, and Dan's vendetta with Regina has something to do with her mother's death.

    Lost Lake Denizens 

Abel Dimitri Rewanz

A cat-based Incubus who was originally going to be Dan's roomate at the Succubus And Incubus Academy, he ended up being sent back to live at Lost Lake and be Dan's teacher instead.

Alexsi Ti'Fiona

Dan's elder half-sister (same father, different mothers), the owner of Lost Lake.


A "Warp-Aci", a kind of extradimensional familiar, that was originally supposed to disguise itself as Dan's letter to attend SAIA and then teleport him there. Through a complicated series of accidents involve Pip, he became Dan's instead.


A mysterious figure who started visting the Lost Lake early in the series run and has recently moved into a relationship with Alexsi.

    Random Goers 


A cat-based Succubus on a quest to find and kill Dan for killing her friend, Destania, she gave it up after falling in love with Merlitz. Extremely proud of being a Succubus, the relationship broke up during the SAIA arc and she went on to become a teacher at the Academy.


A Phoenix B, Aliyka somehow manages to be both an adventurer and a pacifist. An old friend of Dan's, who met her during his first encounter with Dark Phoenix.

The Basement Rats

A group of about four rats who live in the basement at Lost Lake. They became Dan's roomies when he was sent to live down there, but he and they get on well enough.

Biggs San

Wildy San's brother, formerly sister, an exile and leader of the Twinks.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He may be a jerk, but is willing to threaten even Destania for even possibly hurting his sister.
  • The Chessmaster: Someone else who's gearing up for something big...
  • Fantastic Racism: When his sister comes to him with her doubts about whether the adventurer's guild is really helping protect Beings from Creatures, he gives her a lecture on how Creatures are too dangerous to trust, as they have no empathy to restrain their considerable powers.
  • Gender Bender: After Biggs teases him for a bit, Jyrras brings up the following: Biggs used to be "Bridget".
  • Incompatible Orientation: Implied in comic #1640. Jyrras brings up in passing, much to Biggs' enraged embarrassment, that in his original identity as Bridget, she had a huge crush on Dan. It's suggested that Biggs has never confessed to either having been Bridget or about Bridget's romantic feelings to Dan because he figures that Dan would reject him for having been turned into a guy. Ironically, his reaction to the comment suggests he's still carrying a small torch for Dan.
  • Missing Mom: Heavily hinted to have been killed by Regina.
  • Sibling Rivalry: With Wildy.
  • Villain Has a Point: While clearly Biggs' isn't supposed to be likable when he defends the "civilian casualties" in the adventurer/Creature war as For The Greater Good, it's hard to deny that he has a point about how the adventurers are needed. Creatures do abuse Beings, often fatally, and they do get off with a slap on the wrist for it, legally. Hell, the primary type of antagonistic Creature, the Demons, are explicitly called out as not caring to retaliate for their own (because Might Makes Right, so a Demon who got killed deserved it) and as the most rampantly abusive of species because of that same belief that any Being too weak to stop them is just a walking snack if they decide it. Before the Early Installment Weirdness kicked in, even Lorenda the Half-Demon, despite professing to try and follow Being morality, was a rampant cannibal.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Has never been shown wearing a shirt once in comic.

Deebs (Deathbringer) and M.A.C.E

Artificial life-forms accidentally created by Jyrras, Deebs is a living wad of bubblegum that typically takes the shape of a tiny bunny and M.A.C.E is a powerful humanoid robot.

Dark Pegasus

Kria Soulstealer's brother (real name "Aliph Soulstealer"), creator of the whole school of necromancy, but disillusioned with that sort of magic, to the point he now specialises in creating "Death Guards", which are golems fueled by the harvested souls of the undead.
  • Back from the Dead: Multiple times!
  • Came Back Wrong: Kria and Devin note that he seems to get more and more... off... each time he is brought back to life. Specifically he's become more obsessed with conquering or destroying the one kingdom he wants.
  • Contractual Genre Blindness: Prefers the "classic" ways of villaining. This hasn't exactly helped him when facing Dan.
  • Driven by Envy: Aliph felt envious about how Kria's accomplishments got more notoriety while his successes often went unnoticed. This eventually drove him to rush his plan to create an undead army to conquer the kingdom of H-Ann, leading to his mistake that created the Undead and resulted in his first death.
  • Enemy Mine: After a dragon attack in Zinvth, Kria calls him for advice on how to handle the politics of the situation. Dark Pegasus realizes that the dragons are after Dan's grandmother and agrees to help. He is aware of the irony of Dan's greatest nemesis helping him against a bigger threat.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: For all that he can be a horrible villain, he cares a great deal for his family.
  • Evil Gloating: Averted. When he proves to be a far better father figure for Regina than her real father could ever hope to be, he points out he gets more satisfaction about being better than gloating about being better.
  • Evil Overlord
  • Family Values Villain: For all that he cannot comprehend social values, Aliph clearly considers his familial duties to be extremely important. Lorenda describes him as the uncle who attended her dance recitals and taught her to ride a bike, and when Regina concludes that her biggest ambition is a career in fashion, Aliph helps her find entry-level job listings, send applications, and prepare for interviews.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He will kill people mid-sentence and smile at you politely while he rips your heart from your chest (which he almost succeeded to do to Dan)
  • My Greatest Failure: He hates being reminded that he originated the Undead.
  • One of Us: He collects and paints Warhammer 40K (or it's in-universe equivalent) figures.
  • Our Liches Are Different: It's heavily implied that he may be the closest thing in this setting to a Lich.
  • Parental Substitute: With Lorenda's father dead and Regina's father being "an idiot", Aliph has become a substitute father for both of them. At the times when he's shown with Regina, you could almost forget that he's one of the main villains.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Chews out Regina who wants wanton violence because it's just mindless destruction. When she says she wants to be popular, Pegasus points out that violence tends to have the opposite effect.
    • His greatest regret is creating the Undead. Not because he desecrated the graves of countless Beings doing so, but because they have free will and are useless as slaves.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over
  • Sour Supporter: His opinion of Regina's ambition to be a fashionista is that it's stupid, but if it's valuable to her, then he will help her attain it.
    "Regina. I don't know if you have noticed, but I tend to find -everything- stupid."
  • You Are What You Hate: Possibly; the explanation of his Start of Darkness heavily implies that Aliph may be a unique form of undead himself.


An undead cat who Kria Soulstealer used to keep as a slave, when the Undead spontaneously "awoke" forty years ago, she took him in as a kind of adopted son. Secretly, his original self was an associate of Abel's, murdered shortly before he discovered who his father was.


See Cubi Clan Leaders, below.

Kria Soulstealer

Kria Soulstealer, notorious Demon-Mare, mass murderer, rampant cannibal, spreader of chaos. Also Lorenda's mother and not without her good side.

Matilda Kissriss

A tauric three-eyed cobra-like Mythos that Dan meets while accompanying Mab to buy a new home, she is quite attracted to Dan, and reassures him that it's a natural feeling, as her kind are immune to Charm Person effects.
  • Action Girl: She once ripped off her brother's arm and beat him into submission with it. Her brother, for reference, looks something like this. Later subverted. She repeatedly stabbed the corpse of her brother out of anger that he slit his own throat.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Much like Abel, Matilda is currently receiving her own side story serving to flesh her out more.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Her race operates on this, and it's why she says she ripped of her brother's arm and beat him with it. Females are expected to Stay in the Kitchen and defying the alpha male is a death sentence, the attack was to prove how strong she was so that her tribe would recognize her as a male, and would be exiled instead.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Aside from being part of a race that a) has temper issues, and b) can breathe fire, there's the fact that she was exiled for beating her brother into submission. By which we mean killing him, though he was already dead when she found him.
  • Broken Pedestal: Heshi's suicide dramatically changed her opinion of him. That said, she still cared enough to cover up the real reason for his death, and after she learned about depression much later, she started seeing him much more sympathetically.
  • Cute Monster Girl: The females of her race are smaller, smoother and more conventionally cute than their male counterparts, who are large, spiky and quite aggressive to anything that is not a female of their species and sometimes to those too.
  • Fantastic Arousal: A variation; in commic #1731, she confesses that part of why Dan pushes her buttons in terms of physical appeal is because his headwings remind her of the mate-attracting frills the males of her species use to court females. Its not that she hasn't picked up on Being standards enough to find him hot without it, but the fact he pushes one of her instinctive buttons is enough to knock her really silly.
    Matilda: "Eeheeheehe...dat wingspan..."
  • Hidden Depths: While she really is a Nice Girl, one can't live for over 200 years without picking up a past.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass
  • Interspecies Romance: She's a taur Mythos while Dan is a feline Being Incubus.
  • Meaningful Name: As her backstory reveals, the name Matilda comes from Mahilta, a figure in their mythology who killed his brother - just as her former tribe believes that she killed hers.
  • Most Common Superpower: Art Evolution has been VERY kind to Matilda.
  • Nice Girl: She's sweet, kind, understanding, playful, a little silly, but otherwise just a very nice girl.
  • Official Couple: With Dan.
  • Playing with Fire: When she bothers breathing in, she breathes out fire.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Subverted. While the most appearances she's made in the main comic feature her alongside Dan, they tend characterize her further and we get to learn more about her. There's even two comic strips that feature her without Dan which hint that she may take up Adventuring. In fact, Amber especially states that she is creating Matilda's side story specifically so she wouldn't be known as "just the girlfriend of Dan".
  • Self-Made Woman: She's not exactly rich but she informs Dan that when she first arrived in Zinvth, she had quite little patience (and it can be presumed that she had next to nothing since her exile from her clan) but with developing that and hard work, she has managed to procure herself a shop of her own, sufficient amounts of money, and she is quite respected.
  • Tomboy: While she says she acted like a male to prove her worth, when her backstory is shown, her species normally have families of two sons and one daughter, while her father had one son and two daughters. This triad is apparently in their nature, and Matilda naturally gravitated towards being a second son rather than a daughter.
  • Unreliable Narrator: In her backstory, her narration doesn't always match up with what's going on on-panel, especially in regards to her brother. At first it seems to be because her opinion of him changed after he committed suicide, but at the end of her backstory she reveals that she was also offered a lot of money for her story on a talk show and played up certain aspects of it for the viewers.
  • Vertebrate with Extra Limbs: Two "arms" on an upraised torso, four "legs" on a quadrapedal lower body.
  • Why did it have to be Pancakes? : Has a phobia of Pancakes brought on from her being hospitalized after eating some for the first time.

Merlitz Meshaiko

An ex-adventurer who was let go from his group upon claiming to have met a dimension-travelling human, a skilled pyromancer. Had a short-lived romance with Aaryana, but broke things off with her and then left to become an adventurer again after the SAIA arc.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Always seen in blue.
  • Only Sane Man (early on)
  • Playing with Fire: He's a fire mage.
  • Put on a Bus: The character was borrowed from a Furcadia player who was a friend of the author's, as was Aaryana. When the players broke up and left Furcadia, the author broke the characters up and gently removed them from the comic.
    • Bus Crash: As of comic #1326
    • Never Found the Body: As pointed out, his adventurer gem means either he is dead, OR 'sealed by powerful magics'. It's pointed out in an author thing that he's still in a Schrodenger situation.

Regina Darkblood

A Demon of the Soulstealer family, 2nd-niece to Kria and Dark Pegasus. Self-centered and vapid even by Demon standards. Dan and Wildy have a history with her; they've vowed to kill her.

    Real Worlders 


The Author Avatar of, well, Amber. Usually has to be persuaded to continue to write the comic.


A replacement of a former real-life character (A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles doll). Was originally a character in an earlier comic that Amber did as a school project. Mainly acts as a foil with Amber, motivating her through various means.

    Cubi Clan Leaders 

Mother of Destania and grandmother to Dan.


The leader of her eponymous clan. Her emotional affinity is Confusion.


Headmistress of SAIA, she started the academy during the Dragon-Cubi War to protect young cubi and help them to develop and learn.
  • Affably Evil: Self-confessed insane sadist, headmistress of SAIA and strongly implied to kill on a whim, and yet…
  • Beauty Mark: She has one below her right eye.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Almost always adorned in some shade of purple (most commonly magenta, fuchsia, or some combination of the colors, if not wearing outright violet).
  • Eccentric Mentor: She runs an academy for emotion-eating, mind-reading, shape-shifting, inherently magical Creatures. Acting weird comes with the territory. It's partially explained by the fact that being an "orphaned" Cubi Clan Leader tends to leave one a little loopy.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Got into a major fight with Destania when she suggested using Being children to demonstrate methods of torture on, and not only told Aniz how disgusted she was by his treatment of Abel, but only waited for him to stand up after the first punch she threw, which was for a completely different reason, just so she could get the best possible angle on the second punch.
  • Friend to All Children: She is noted on her cast page to have "a near insane love for children and infants" which is evidenced in the main comic by her taking in and watching over Abel after he was forced into SAIA, sparing an infant Pyroduck's life (in lieu of killing him for revenge on his father) and giving him to the care of the Phoenix Oracle Da, and, as Fi notes, getting into a rather nasty fight with Destania when the latter wanted to use Being children and infants in her torture class.
  • Gag Boobs: She's the most buxom of all the characters in the series. Even other Cubi assume she's abusing her shapeshifting abilities to get them, though it's hard to say whether they're actually natural or not. She also lampshades the trope by noting that if they were any bigger, she'd need to reinforce her spine to handle them.
  • Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have!: As she sadly lampshades in the second half of Abel's story, nobody seems to ever notice.
  • Hope Springs Eternal: Her clan's signature emotion was Hope. This, her motherly tendencies and her friendship with Cyra made her a target during the Dragon/Cubi War. And ultimately what got her through it.
    ...I was the clan of Hope, Daniel, And hope is a very peculiar thing. Sometimes, hope is all one has. And sometimes... hope is all one needs.
  • I Want Grandkids: The reason why she's so thrilled that Pyroduck is dating Alexsi.
  • Large and in Charge: According to Cyra, all Clan Leaders are naturally huge. She's just shapeshifted herself down. Which makes it a lot less unusual that she would know nearly everything going on at SAIA: theoretically, she could be as big as the academy itself.
  • Last Of Her Kind: Not in the obvious sense, since there are plenty of cubi around. But Fa'Lina's the last of her clan. And clan leaders can neither have more children nor convert others into their clan, so she always will be.
  • Mood-Swinger: Apparently, all Cubi are like this and it gets worse the more powerful they are. Fa'Lina is a very powerful Succubus.
  • Older Than They Look: As with many Cubi.
  • Omniscient Morality License: She claims to have this, but also freely admits to being an insane sadist because they're apparently a package deal.
  • Parental Substitute: To Abel and Pyroduck.
  • Plucky Girl: See Hope Springs Eternal.
  • Really Nine Thousand Years Old
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Another complicated one. She's a fantastic mother figure, but she's self-admittedly evil.
  • Sizeshifter: See Large and in Charge.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes
  • Team Mom: To her school. Her clan was originally known for this.
    • To the point of becoming something of a surrogate mother to Pyroduck and Abel.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Taun has stated that Fa'lina is living on borrowed time due to having lost her entire clan and keeping SAIA out of the physical plane


The leader of her eponymous clan. Her emotional affinity is Pride.


The leader of her eponymous clan. Her emotional affinity is Lust.


The leader of His eponymous clan. His emotional affinity is Love.

  • Duality Motif: His Clan always has Two of Something about them, both being opposites of each other. Two eye colors or two types of wings (one being angelic the other being demonic) are the most common
  • Nice Hat: Is it Ever!
  • Opt Out: Never comes to any meetings.
  • The Power of Love
  • Shrouded in Myth: To the point the other Clan leaders have their doubts he's even alive.
    • Extends to his clan. They don't use the Academy and the only reason the other clan's know they are still around is One Envoy shows up every thousand years.
  • Walking the Earth


The leader of her eponymous clan. Her emotional affinity is Envy.



Abel's father, who tricked Abel's mother into bearing his child by murdering her husband and assuming his form.

  • Abusive Parents: He successfully pretended to be a loving father with no hints of abuse for around two decades, but then he turned around and packed enough abuse for a lifetime into one day.
  • Consummate Liar: Comments on this at one point, when he says that he could make up a sob story about how all he wanted was to live the humble life and have a family... after all, he's spent so long living a lie; might as well throw a few more out there, right? Though as it turns out, the part about him wanting to have a family wasn't entirely a lie.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Aniz used to be more carefree and cheerful, even managing to woo Destania of all people. Then his clan was slaughtered and things rapidly went downhill from there.
  • Killed Offscreen: By Edward Ti'fiona and his wife, Quintinga.
  • Last of His Kind: At first; he was the sole survivor of the massacre that destroyed his clan who didn't kill himself or change clans afterwards. Needless to say it had a major effect on him. He later managed to father Abel and may have fathered others before his death.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Survivor Guilt: It's hinted that the psychic backlash of his entire clan being killed was his Start of Darkness
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: More like "used to be a total dork". When Fa'lina is describing Aniz's past relationship with Destania to Dan, the image shown is of teenage-equivalent Aniz amusing his girlfriend by making fart noises.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He seems smug, calmly sadistic and generally in-control at first... which abruptly collapses when Hennya slightly injures him and things stop going as planned.
    • We later learn this exact behavior is very typical of cubi, since their existing off emotions makes them often lose fights because they get way over-emotional way quickly.


A faerie whose favorite form is that of a fox, he wears a patch to give himself more angelic wings and hide his antennae because he thinks they make him look girly.


A feline-based Succubus, Dan's mother.



A dragon infamous among the Cubi for destroying numerous clans, including Fa'Lina's, Siar's and Cyra's. He seems to be taking a particularly active role in the dragon's conflict with the Cubi.

  • Big Bad: Certainly shaping up to be this.
  • Can't Kill You, Still Need You: Towards Abel. As Dark Pegasus and one of his own minions point out, Hizell could have easily bribed Kria into looking the other way and kill Abel consequence free. Instead, he "simply" brutalizes Abel and leaves him alive, both to avoid coming into conflict with Zinvth, and to draw out Destania.
  • The Chessmaster: When fighting Siar, he anticipated that she'd summon backup and had his own reinforcements lying in wait. Siar didn't stand a chance. More recently, it's revealed at the Cubi Conference that he's responsible for the rise of an "anti-creature" cult and anti-Cubi propaganda in adventuring guilds.
  • The Ghost: At first, he was only seen on-panel once, in silhouette. It wasn't until the "Friends in High Places" arc that he finally made his first on-panel speaking appearance.
  • Not So Different: Both he and Destania are lying low but making genocidal plans to wipe out their enemies.
